‘The Americans’ season 2 set photo features Vladimir Lenin painting

A set photo teasing the second season of FX’s hit show The Americans also features a famous painting of Vladimir Lenin.

The Americans FX show bannerThe 1917 painting of the Soviet leader is center stage between stars Lev Gorn and Annet Mahendru.

Twitter has been the source of many photos featuring script covers and prop pieces, so fans can get a tease from time to time.

The Americans centers on two Soviet intelligence agents living in the US as regular American citizens during the Cold War. Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell star as a married couple running Russian ops stateside with their two children across the street from a key playing in the FBI (Noah Emmerich).

The homage to Lenin as the father of  the USSR, also known as the Soviet Union, seems fitting. The USSR grew in the wake of the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution under Lenin and the Bolshevik Party was later renamed the Communist Party seizing control of the Russian government and retained it through a civil war that raged until 1920.

Reportedly the first few episodes of The Americans for season 2 are complete as the show is set to return in February.


CORRECTION: The text originally stated that Matthew Rhys was in the photo, but it has been corrected to reflect that it is Lev Gorn- BBJ, The Dispatch)
